Also on the shortlist are Conte’s compatriots, Juventus boss Max Allegri and Napoli’s Maurizio Sarri.
Rodgers spent four years with the Blues. He was lured to the club from Reading by then manager Jose Mourinho.
The Northern Irishman coached the youth team before being promoted to the reserves.
The 45-year-old left to take charge of Watford. He has also managed Reading, Swansea City and Liverpool, and has been in his current job at Celtic since 2016.
